  • Well it depends, is this the last house you will purchase or will you buy another down the road? If this is your starter home you may want to hang on to the funds for your future home.

  • Its a pretty good market to buy in this economy in most places!! But if I was pretty happy in my current home, and couldnt sell my current house and get some value out of it then Id be remodeling as much as possible

  • Well, we are renovating ours right now. We bought it as a foreclosure home and it need A LOT of work. When we are finished, we should have a home that is worth nearly 10 times what we paid for it, so I'm going with remodeling.

  • well kinda depends. if the current home's remodling would be more than the house it's self I wouldnt do it. If you can find a good house for a good price shoot for it.

  • as long as you're spending wisely, why not remodel for yourself, particularly if you're rendered immobile by the housing market?
